Certify and attest your award documents

As a student, you can have your certificate and/or transcript attested and certified as a true copy of the original to help process your application for your employer or to pursue a higher education.

To have your award documents certified and attested, please email verifications@bcu.ac.uk with the below information:

  • Student name and date of birth
  • Brief description of the service you require
  • High quality scan of your certificate and/or transcript. Please ensure these are PDF files as anything else will be rejected and you will be asked to resubmit
  • Proof of ID to verify your identity. This can either be your passport, a valid UK license or birth certificate. Passport numbers are not accepted as proof of ID

As part of this service, we can also send your certified documents to your employer or an admissions team. If you would also like this, please include their contact email address and name.
